The Official Journal of the
Western Risk and Insurance Association
The Journal of Insurance Issues, the official journal of the Western Risk and Insurance Association, is co-sponsored by the Southern Risk and Insurance Association. From 1979 through 1984 the Journal was published as the Journal of Insurance Issues and Practices.
The Journal of Insurance Issues (JII) is a peer‐reviewed scholarly journal that publishes rigorous theoretical and empirical research in the field of risk and insurance. The JII encourages new perspectives and is open to all research methods including, but not limited to, empirical studies, mathematical proofs, laboratory experiments and simulations. All manuscripts, including empirical manuscripts, need to test, extend, and/or develop new theory that is relevant and timely for public policy or practitioners. Each year, one article from JII is selected for the prestigious Donald Hardigree Award.
The JII is included in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) – a multidisciplinary citation index covering all areas of the scholarly literature of the sciences, social sciences and arts & humanities. The Journal is also listed in Cabell’s. All issues of the JII are available online through JSTOR. In addition to JSTOR, articles included in the journal are also available in Business Source Complete, ABI/INFORM Global, and RePec, among others.
The best method of contacting the Journal is via email.
The Journal is published twice per year with a spring (No. 1) and a fall (No. 2) issue.
